Role in the project

We expect to combine elements of the CESSDA Data Catalogue (including Kuha2-based OAI-PMH endpoint), CESSDA Metadata Validator, CESSDA Vocabulary Service and CESSDA ELSST to provide enhanced knowledge representation, richer Open Knowledge Graphs, linkages to Data Management Plans and large-scale FAIR assessment of metadata.
